Phentermine is a medication that helps suppress appetite and extend the satiation feeling, leading to faster and more effective weight loss results for those dealing with obesity. 

This medication stimulates the central nervous system of the body, increasing your heart rate and blood pressure while decreasing cravings and appetite. At PhySlim, our expert medical providers combine this innovative treatment with a comprehensive look at your overall health. 

By also encouraging lifestyle changes, such as exercising and eating a balanced diet, we can help you lose weight while improving your overall quality of life.  

Phentermine Eligibility

During your initial evaluation we will evaluate whether Phentermine is the right fit to achieve your weight loss goals. 

We will help you seek alternative options to this medication in case you are dealing with or have suffered from:

  • Glaucoma or thyroid issues
  • Severe heart and blood pressure problems
  • Advanced coronary artery disease 
  • Drug abuse

Getting Started with Phentermine Weight Loss Program

We will examine your vitals, weight, measurements, and blood samples for testing. Once this is completed, you will also be administered a Vitamin B-12 injection, which will help boost your energy levels and metabolism to give you a head start on your weight loss program.

As soon as we’ve determined that Phentermine is the right fit for your weight loss program, we will provide you with the medication guidelines. You’ll be expected to take this medication before breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after breakfast each day. 

The original dosage may be changed as you continue with your weight loss journey and we monitor your progress. Always make sure to follow the exact prescription indications, as a higher intake of Phentermine could lessen its effects or cause dangerous side effects. 

Phentermine Side Effects

Common side effects of Phentermine vary from person to person, and their intensity usually depends on your current state of health or co-occurring conditions. These common side effects include: 

  • Sleeplessness
  • Nervousness
  • Constipation
  • Dry Mouth
  • Unpleasant taste
  • Diarrhea
  • Mild nausea 

These are rarely serious and can be easily managed with lifestyle changes or through a vitamin and supplement intake.
